The world's tallest building

In an architecural feat of engineering, the world's tallest building continues to rise. Constructed of glass, steel, and concrete, the final height of the building in Dubai, United Arab Emirates is a closely guarded secret. What is known is the Dubai Tower now stands at 1,831.5 feet (and growing), making it the tallest building in the world. The lower 37 floors will house an upscale Georgio Armani hotel, and house 700 luxury condominiums (which sold out in less than a day). I wouldn't want to be on the top floors when it sways.
